2 Alder, Garry Beyond Bokhara, The Life of William Moorcroft, Asian Explorer and Pioneer Veterinary Surgeon 1767-1825
UK Century 1985 Hardcover Very Good-good Very Good/Good 23.5cm 
417pp, a kilo to post. ex-Wilmslow lib (Cheshire), usual indicators/tickets. In the India office library there is a letter addressed to w. moorcroft edq., samarkand or elsewhere'. It is a tribute to this astonishing man that letter reached him, 1,000 miles away across the mountains and deserts of central asia. Yet today few people have heard of him or of his pioneering achievements as a surgeon and explorer. this long overdue and fascinating biography at last gives moorcroft the recognition he deserves. According to Bill Buxton > "This is the only biography of William Moorcroft, one of the great early explorers of the region north west of India. He was a veterinarian who came to India in 1808 as Superintendent of East India Company's horses. He traveled widely, ostensibly in search of breeding stock, but this was clearly more of a pretext than fact. He undertook a journey into western Tibet in 1812, across the Garhwal Himalaya to Lake Manasarowar, Mount Kailas region, the Rakas Tal, and Gartok. Moorcroft and Hearsey were the first Englishmen in the area. "His next major trip was to Bokhara. He left British territory in 1820, for a trip that would last until 1825. Due to civil unrest in Afghanistan, he decided to go via Ladakh and Chinese Turkistan. He waited in Leh for permission from Kashgar, during which time he traveled and explored the greater part of Ladakh, the Karakoram Pass, the head-waters of the Yarkand River, the Western Himalaya, the Karakoram and the NW Frontier. In 1824, after deciding that permission would never come , he decided to go via Afghanistan, regardless of the civil conflict there. Traveled through Kashmir and Punjab, over the Khyber Pass, across the Oxus, and got to Bokhara. He died during the return trip."

3 Barr Pat A CURIOUS LIFE FOR A LADY The Story of Isabella Bird, Traveller Extraordinary
Penguin, UK 1985 0140079211 / 9780140079210 Card Cover Good 20cm 
When in 1872 at the age of forty, the rather earnest daughter of a country parson abandoned the rectory nest and began her pioneering journeys to some of the most inhospitable corners of the world, she was aware that she was escaping the frustrations and shackles of Victorian middle class life. As she remarked "travellers are privileged to do the most improper things".

In the Power of the Pygmies, Gilson, Captain Charles
4 Gilson, Captain Charles In the Power of the Pygmies
UK Humphrey Milford 1919 Hardcover Good to Very Good No Jacket 20.5cm Archibald Webb 
In the Power of the Pygmies by Captain Charles Gilson is over 500g to post & 284pp plus catalogue at rear. What is the theme of this book? I'm glad you asked >> Britain is a great nation that has the right to rule over others and when a nation disrespects or is dangerous to the British way of life they must be controlled. The Africans, or pygmies as Gilson calls them, were obviously not a civilization that was prominent in the English consciousness, but as Britain is a vast and powerful nation & therefore logically the pygmies are in need of European domination and governance. Herein (this story) is created for young audiences, a sensationalized, subversive depiction of African cultures, totally created by European powers. The Power Of The Pygmies is a blatant act of Orientalism with constant depictions of pygmies, which are presumed to be Africans, as savage, uncivilized monsters who pose a great threat to the cordial, English way of living. << so, now you have the gist of the thinking of the time & probably not just Gilson's. A few coloured plates, book has fox spotting scattered (blame the pygmies??), illustrated board cover.

Scott's Last Journey, King, Peter (ed)
5 King, Peter (ed) Scott's Last Journey
UK Duckworth 1999 Hardcover Excellent Excellent 25.5cm Herbert Ponting (photos) 
A kilo to post & 192 snow white pp, foreword by Beryl Bainbridge. There is growing world wide interest in the epic attempts to reach the South Pole by Shackleton and Scott, the latter's ending in tragedy. At the time these men were uncritically accepted as Englishmen in the heroic mould, though in past decades their legendary exploits have been subjected to more severe examination. The book also includes over 150 photographs taken by the Antarctic photographer, Herbert Ponting. These are used with captions, together with side notes to the journals, to explain more clearly and comprehensively what happened on the fatal expedition. review >>> I believe this is the last word in putting Captain Scott's own story into print, accompanied as it is with Herbert Ponting's superb images.
